Notes

  1. ^ The notation Old Style or (OS) is sometimes used to indicate a date in the Julian Calendar (which is used by churches on the "Old Calendar").
    The notation New Style or (NS), indicates a date in the Revised Julian calendar (which is used by churches on the "New Calendar").
  2. ^ He is unknown in the Synaxaristes. He is recorded in the Jerusalemitic Codex 1096 p.123 as follows: "Memory of the blessed Patriarchs Alexander, John and Paul the New, and the Blessed Guardian" (see Dimitrievsky, Typica B, p. 55).[12]
  3. ^ They were martyred under Maximian in Hadrumetum, now Soussa in Tunisia in North Africa.
  4. ^ "At Rome, on the Ostian road, the martyrdom of the blessed priest Felix, under the emperors Diocletian and Maximian. After being racked he was sentenced to death, and as they led him to execution, he met a man who spontaneously declared himself a Christian, and was forthwith beheaded with him. The Christians not knowing his name, called him Adauctus, because he was added to St. Felix and shared his crown."[17]
  5. ^ Felix and Adauctus: Martyrs beheaded in Rome under Diocletian. St Felix was a priest and as he was being led to execution, a bystander confessed Christ and was martyred with him. Because this second martyr's name was not known, he was called Adauctus, i.e., the one added. They were buried on the Ostian Way.[16]
  6. ^ On the death of his wife in 395, Pammachius became a monk and spent the rest of his life and his immense wealth in the service of the sick and the poor.
  7. ^ "ST. RUMON, or RUAN, was a native of Ireland, and a Bishop, it is said, who came to Cornwall to end his days in holy solitude. He chose a cell in a certain forest in Cornwall, which then abounded in wild beasts. In this spot he devoted himself to his pious practices, and in God's good time was called to his heavenly reward. About the year 981, when Duke Ordulph had completed the monastery at Tavistock which his father had begun, the relics of St. Rumon were solemnly translated to that church, and were there nobly enshrined. He was regarded with great veneration, as one of the special patrons of that foundation. St Ruan in Cornwall is near the Lizard Point, and several churches in the parish or neighbourhood are dedicated in his honour, as also the Church of Romans Leigh, in Worcestershire. Malmesbury saw the shrine of the Saint at Tavistock, but could learn no particulars of his life."[19] Romansleigh in Devon is named after him.
  8. ^ A young nobleman who became a monk with St Columbanus at Luxeuil. He remained at Luxeuil under the founder's successor, St Eustace, but went with him in 612 to preach in Bavaria. On his return to France he became Abbot of Rebais near Paris.
  9. ^ A monk in Calabria in Italy and Abbot of St Mercurius. He was already old when his monastery was destroyed by the Saracens.[16]
